What is a crease worth?3224

Collector imagejock private msg quote post Address this user
If you have a book and it appears all that is wrong with it is a small crease less than 1/4 inch and slightly breaks color on the lower right front cover....what would this grade at roughly?

According to the overstreet grading guide it says that only a 7.5 allows for that crease that breaks color. Is this true?

Without having the book in hand its impossible to accurately grade it. There are just too many variables when it comes to accurately grading Comics. Assuming the book has 9.6 - 9.8 qualities, I would tend to agree with the other board members on the 9.2 NM-. I can't see the crease in the scan, but it appears the bottom right edge has some "roll" on it, and I WILL find some other tiny imperfections that might likey make the book a 9.0

Again, comic Grading is so subjective its hard to really know without having the book in hand.

@DarthLego Very tip of the bottom right corner, right at the edge of the glare.

I think 9.2 is a safe bet. Nothing wrong with a 9.2, it is still in near mint range.

If its more of a "blunt" on the tip and the book displays nice 9.8 qualities, I can see the book in a 9.4 slab. Ive crack plenty of 9.4's with more issues than that.

Eye of the Beholder I guess
